First trip to Japan/Tokyo and am glad to be staying at this hotel. Simple, clean, nice and most importantly value for money. Location initially hard to locate, but once you found it, you will find it to be an excellent quiet location and yet close to the various buzzes of Shinjuku. Room wise, small in fact for some very small.... More

Walking distance from Shinjuku-sanchome station exit E2. Its about 15 mins walk from Shinjuku station to exit E2 at Shinjuku-sanchome. Both stations are linked. This hotel though small, it provides complimentary breakfast. Love love love the bread which are freshly baked daily. Different type everyday. The rooms though very clean are extremely tiny. We could only open 1 luggage at... More

This is probably the best budget hotel I stayed at in Japan. The room is bigger than all the other budget hotels I've stayed in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. It's much newer, cleaner and provide breakfast. It's actually cheaper than the hotel I stayed in asakusabasa, which is surprising considering shinjuku is prime real estate. The location of the hotel... More

Located in the middle of Tokyo. I was lucky to stay here. The price is not so expensive and the staffs are very nice. I did not have a reservation but I was able to get a room at the ladies floor. Security is also nice. I did not have any problem during my stay here. (^.^)

One of the things about Tokyo is the price of hotels. This is a great deal and wonderful location walking distance from the train station and far enough from the bar district but close enough to catch the action. The rooms are small but that is pretty much the norm until you get outside Tokyo. Extremely clean, they give you... More

We were fortunate to book in to this hotel for our first 2 nights in Tokyo, as most other Shinjuku hotels were fully booked, or very expensive, at the peak of cherry-blossom season. The hotel is a little tricky to find the first time, our cab driver had trouble even with the Japanese address.It's also a challenge walking to JR... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. The room was small as expected but consider the value, we were pleased. JR Shinjuku East station is about 12 minutes away. Higashi shinjuku subway station is about 5 minutes. It may be difficult to find a hotel at first but once you know how to get around, it's not far to JR Shinjuku... More

Decoration is modern and fresh. Front dest staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is bigger than we thought. Bed is just a good size double bed. Bathroom is small but has everything you need.

It is very near to shinjuku sanchome (exit from E2). Takashimaya, Isetan , lawson and 7-11 are very near to this hotel too. Twin room is really very small as commented in TA but it was extremely clean and has everything that we need. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. I love the simple free breakfast provided, will visit... More
